Gorilla siblings joyfully reunite after three years!

“Just like humans who haven't seen each other in a few years, they began with a formal handshake. But then, the two could just not contain their excitement - First came the squeeze of shoulders, then a giant hug and finally, the ultimate evidence of joy - A rough tumble into the soft grass. That, is how the workers at the Longleat Safari and Adventure Park in Wiltshire, England, are describing last week's joyful reunion of Alf and Kesho, two lowland gorilla brothers that had been separated for three years.”

“Olympics spoiler alert - Usain Bolt has been outrun! How do we know this before the world's fastest man has even run the finals of his signature 100-meter dash? Because, while Usain hopes to complete the distance in 9.4 seconds, Sarah has already done it in a blistering 5.95 seconds. However, in all fairness to the Jamaican sprinter, she does have a slight advantage, because Sarah is not a two-legged human, but a four-legged cheetah!”

“The 11-year old cat performed this mind-boggling run on the USA Track & Field certified course at the Cincinnati Zoo where she resides, on June 20th, 2012, during a special shoot organized by The National Geographic.”

“Competing with four other cheetahs, Sarah ran several 100 meter sprints, bolting out of the zoo's vans in pursuit of the fluffy toy dogs which were being pulled across the track by a high-speed cord. While Sarah's time was definitely impressive, the laggard, a young male teenage cat was not too shabby either (at least by human standards), rendering a best time of 9.7 seconds.”
“And while the rest of the world may be surprised at Sarah's rapid pace which National Geographic photo editor Kim Hubbard said made her look like a 'polka-dotted missile', Cathryn Hilker, founder of the Cincinnati Zoo's Cat Ambassador Program, who has helped raise Sarah from when she was a cub, is not surprised - She had always known that the feline had it in her to complete the dash in less than 6 seconds.”

“This is not the first time Sarah has rained on Usain's parade. Just a month after the sprinter stunned the world with his 9.58 second 100m dash, she broke two records within a short time span of 15 minutes - first at 6.16 and then 6.13 seconds!”

An Olympic sprinter has a time of 9.4 on the 100 meter dash but he has been beet. Now he does have a slight disadvantage because the person that beat him isn’t a person at all… shes a cheetah.

The cat is 11 years old and her name is sarah she showed off her skill at a track in the zoo. She was raceing 4 other cheetahs and she bet them.

Cheetahs are the fastest land mamels. Hey can run up to 70 mph (miles per hour). They can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles an hour in just a second.

US Hurricane Season Begins Whith A Splash As Isaac Unleashes on The gulf States
By: Meera Dolasia
“It was supposed to have pounded the coast of Florida and even delayed Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney's nomination by a few days. But hurricane Isaac changed course midway. After barely grazing the Florida Keys, it bypassed the rest of the Sunshine State and instead, unleashed its fury on the three Gulf states of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.”
Hurricane Isaac was very powerful it cast lots of rain in many different areas. Hurricane Isaac caused 6 deaths.A million residents whith out power.streets were flooded badly.

So what causes these unstoppable acts of nature? In this article we go behind the scenes to examine how and why hurricanes happen and, if there is anything we can do to stop them.

“Though scientists have been studying hurricanes for only the last one hundred years, there is evidence that these powerful storms have been going on for much longer. In fact, the name hurricane is thought to have evolved from the word 'Hurakan' - One of the gods of the ancient Mayan civilization that inhabited Mexico around 900 AD. The Mayans believed that Hurakan caused these storms by blowing his breath across the water. In 1400 AD the Carib Indians, who lived in the West Indies Islands re-named the storms 'Hurican', or god of evil”.

Are you smarter than a chimp? Humans think we are the smarter than anything else on earth. Is that true? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
The scientists test chimps to see if it is. Suprisingly chimps think how to do things that humans never think about. It's not creating life or electricity, but still impressive. Some chimps can do puzzles or something like that in half the time as humans.
One test is how to get a peanut out of a long thin clear tubethat'sattatched to a wall? Can't put your hand down it. Try to figure it out before the chimp does. Youll have plenty of time because the video needs to buffer.
Can't think of it can you? The awnser is pretty simple. Just get a mouthful of water and spit it in the tube. The peanut will float to the top. Didn't think of that did you? Ha! you're not smarter than a chimp... and neither am I. Oooooooooooooooh.

For farmers, the drought is a big deal since it is damaging corn supply. So, prices in corn go from 4 dollars to 8 dollars a bushel. These two farmers Nick Smith and Joseph Watson are expierencing a solution that could save them from going bankrupt.
Classified as one of the worst droughts in decades, it has destroyed more than half the country’s crops which pushed the prices up resulted in them sifting through various alternatives they settled for candy which has kept their cows healthy. It has a higher fat content than corn, but it was affordable since they were able to obtain disfigured candy from the manufacturers themselves at highly discounted prices.
But don’t get concerned because this only makes up a very small percent of their daily diet. The rest is healthier ethanol and some mineral nutrients. According to the farmers is a perfect mix of nutritious meals for the cows. They are probably delicious too.
Since their cows look pretty healthy, the two farmers are happy, and plan to switch back to corn once the supply gets back to normal. Let’s just hope the cows are ok with this too.

This year, because of the drought, farmers could not allow the cattle to eat vegetables. The farmers would have to figure out something else to feed the cattle. Nick Smith and Joseph Watson decided chocolate would be the perfect substitute.

I do not think this was a wise idea, because the cows could've gotten sick from the chocolate. Many animals are allergic to chocolate so they took a pretty big risk. Plus there's no telling how much candy they would have to buy to feed 1400 cows.

Nick Smith and Joseph Watson thought that it would be great because it would keep the cows healthy. The chocolate was also more affordable than vegetables. I wonder how much chocolate they would have to buy?

Once the supplies get back to normal, the cows will have to eat vegetables. I wonder if the cows got used to the chocolate? Will they ever adapt back to vegetables?

COWS ARE EATING CANDY.SWEET!!
Kentucky farmers have been giving cows candy for a few months. They feed there 1,400 cattle candy. They came up this because corn cost so much.
This is only temporary. They do this so that the cows get enough calories. What I’m wandering is, does the candy cost rack up? Is this the cheapest option? Do the cows like it better than corn?
I think that the farmers should try to find a healthier solution. What happens if the cow’s stomach can’t handle the sweetness of the candy bar? The candy bars would make the cows thirstier therefore resulting in more work because they would need water.
Farmers should water there corn more often. If everybody did their part then we would have more corn for less money. I don’t think candy is as good for cows as corn is.

THE EYELESS SPIDER
By: Meera Dolaisa

Peter Jager discovered the eyeless spider in SOUTHEAST ASIA.
It has a leg span of 6 centimeters. The eyeless spider has a body span
of just 12 millimeters. Peter Jager found it in a cave in laos. Its
environment is the caves of laos.
They have discovered blind cave fish, and scorpions. They inhabit
In the same cave that the eyeless spider does. Peter Jager works at Frankfurt’s Senckenburg reseach institute. The call it a arachnid. Its identified as a huntsman.
I wonder if there is a different color of the spider? Does it just hear it or does it feel it? We know it can’t see. The eyeless spider sounds like a m-yth. They say that it likes a dark environment. You never know , it could like sunny or hot environment.
They never said what cave it was in. They just said it was in laos. They could be lieing. They know that they should not kill it because they could watch it. The could see what it does. Should they try to find more of them. Do they bite? Does the venon kill people. We will never know till they find more information.

Smarter Than A Chimp
By Austin Harris

Chimpanzees are smart animals like alot of other animals. The chimp was smart in how he figured out to get the peanut out of the tube. Humans may be smart, but animals can be just as smart or sometimes smarter.
Just like humans animals can figure out how to do things. I think animals are not dumb at all.
I think it is neat that animals share some of the same DNA, that we do. ( It did say in the article that chimps share 99% of the same DNA as us.)
It would be neat to do more research to see what puzzles other animals could do.

My article is titled “Nifty Invention by Teen Could Save School Districts Thousands of Dollars.” It is about a boy from Illinois named Jonny Cohen who had an idea that could make school buses more energy efficient. This could save schools tons of money and helps out the environment. Now Jonny is a senior in high school and his dream finally comes true. This article was posted by Meera Dolasia.

It all started for him when he was 12 in 2008. He had just got back from a science summer camp and was eager to find something to apply his newly found knowledge of aerodynamics to. He had the idea of something he uses every day and thought of a school bus. After thinking about it some he came up with the idea of attaching a Plexiglas shield to the front of the bus which would redirect airflow and make the bus more aerodynamic.

Even though everybody at his school loved the idea he still had to test it out. He was able to get a grant of $1,000 to help him make a mini version of his idea to test it out. Sure enough his idea worked. He was able to get another grant (thanks to his family and community) which was enough to build the real thing. He got lots of help from universities and even some engineering students to help him build it. They call this project greenshields. The 4th generation greenshields is basically the same thing but has the Plexiglas that gets installed on the roof of the bus. Now that everyone has heard of Jonny’s idea now he is finally being recognized (now that he’s a senior) of his great idea.

Thanks to Jonny’s ingenious idea we now have more energy efficient buses in his area and it’s better for the environment!!!!

I chose this article because I thought it was really cool that a 12 year old boy came up with such a neat idea. I feel that I have learned that even a small dream can turn into a really good thing that lots of people know about. I also learned that aerodynamics can have a pretty big effect on the environment. This information will help us in the future because now we know a little bit more on aerodynamics and energy efficient things.

Gorillas Reunite after 3 years!!!!!
-Just like humans, gorillas shake hands and hug each other.
-These 2 gorillas are brothers and have been apart for 3 years because Kesho was moved away to a breeding program and left his younger brother Alf.
-In those 3 years, Kesho gained 200 hundered punds.
-Each Gorilla has a special inprint or unique nose print, the print stays the same for the gorillas whole life.
-That is how those 2 brothers remembered each other.
-Gorillas and humans are alot alike. We all have emotions and being reunited with your brother, just like Alf and Kesho, we would all be happy and excited!

A Runner That Makes Usain Bolt’s 100-meter Sprint Seem…. Painfully Slow!
Olympics spoiler alert - Usain Bolt has been outrun! How do we know this before the world's fastest man has even run the finals of his signature 100-meter dash? Because, while Usain hopes to complete the distance in 9.4 seconds, Sarah has already done it in a blistering 5.95 seconds. However, in all fairness to the Jamaican sprinter, she does have a slight advantage, because Sarah is not a two-legged human, but a four-legged cheetah!
This 11-year old cat performed a mind-boggling run on the USA Track & field certified course at the Cincinnati Zoo where she resides, on June 20th, 2012, during a special shoot organized by the National Geographic.

Cheetahs are the world’s fastest land mammals. They can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 3 seconds. This sweltering pace added to their keen eyesight and ability to blend into the high dry grass in the African savannah makes them very formidable hunters. Just between 9,000 to 12,000 left in the wild today, they are a highly endangered species!

The article I chose is called A Runner That’s Makes Usain Bolt’s 100-Meter Sprint Seem…Painfully Slow! By: Meera Dolasia. This article is about how a Jamaican sprinter, named Sarah and she beat the record on the 100-meter dash. This sprinter is not a human but a cheetah. She is known as the fastest captive land mammal on earth.

Sarah beat Usain Bolt in the 100-meter dash. Usain finished the 100-meter dash in 9.4 seconds. Sarah beat him with a finish of 5.95 seconds. Sarah is 11-years old and she performed the course at the Cincinnati Zoo on June 20th, 2012. Sarah broke two records in 15 minutes. The first one was 6.16 seconds and the second one was 6.13 seconds.

Sarah competed with 4 other cheetahs. She was first place and then second place was a male cheetah and he got 9.7 seconds. Kim Hubbard said that she was not surprised and that she always knew that Sarah could complete the race in less then 6 seconds. “Cheetahs are the world’s fastest land mammals”. Cheetahs can run from 0 to 60 miles per hour in three seconds. Cheetahs are have very good eye sight and they are really good at blending in with the tall grass in the African Savannah makes very good hunters.

What I learned from this article was that cheetahs are able to run from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just three seconds! I also learned that they have good eyesight. I also learned that between 9,000 to 12,000 cheetahs left in the wild are highly endangered. Why I would need to know this information is because in the future if I study about what species can build up their speed the fastest. This is the information about the article I read.

I’m doing my article review on the gorilla siblings that were reunited. This article was written by Meera Dolaisa. I picked this article because I’m an animal lover! Plus, it made me happy to see two gorilla brothers reunite. So, that’s what I’m doing my article review on.
These two brothers were separated when Kesho, the oldest, was taken away for a breeding program. Kesho was taken to the London zoo. The brothers were away from each other for three entire years. Though it was a long wait the two were back together long at last. At first the park officials were worried the two wouldn’t recognize each other. But they soon realized that wasn’t going to be a problem. Since gorillas share 98% of their DNA with humans they recognized each other within minutes!
The great news is the brothers are going to spend the rest of their lives together at the USD Gorilla Colony that has been established for the many bachelor lowland gorillas that are currently in the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria breeding program. The western lowlands gorillas are currently on the endangered species list. Scientists think there are about 100,000 to 150,000 lowland gorillas left in the wild. So try to use less and clean up the Earth!
Like I said I chose this article because I’m an animal lover. All this information helped me learn more about gorillas because I really knew nothing about gorillas. This information might help me in the future if I do a report on gorillas. Even further into the future this information could help if I start working with animals! So that’s why I picked this article.

My artical's name is "Worlds First Eyeless Spider Discovered In Southeast Asia. Scientists found the first eyeless spider in Asia. They thought they found all the spieces of spiders, but they didn't. They found it in Southeast Asia. Sinopoda Scurion was the first one with no eyes. They found it in a cave.

This sentence is from the artical "The tiny arachnid that sports a leg span of six centimeters and a body size of just twelve millimeters, was found in a cave inside the tiny nation of Laos, in Southeast Asia.

I thought that everything had eyes but after I read this I quess they don't. Now I know that spiders can survive without eyes.Do they have to put it in a habitat for it to survive?

Gorilla siblings joyfully reunite after three years
By: Meera Dolasia

One of the important things from the story is that these two gorillas have not seen each other in three years but the amazing thing is they never forget a family member. They can remember each other by there noses.
Just like humans who haven't seen each other in a few years, they began with a formal handshake. But then, the two could just not contain their excitement - First came the squeeze of shoulders, then a giant hug and finally, the ultimate evidence of joy - A rough tumble into the soft grass. The best news is that all three siblings will now spend the rest of their lives together at this $4.72mm USD Gorilla Colony that has been established for the many bachelor lowland gorillas that are currently in the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria breeding program. Gorillas' that share about 98% of their DNA with humans have a special way of recognizing members of their families or clans - By looking at their nose, because each one of them has a unique nose print, one that doesn't change throughout his/her life.
I chose this article because I love wildlife and how they live because thes r creatures that we do not get to see very often.i learn fronm this that no matter how long anamels can be away from each other they always remember each other.it will help me better understand in the future wene I need to

Sarah the cheetah ran several 100 meter sprints, bolting out of the zoo's vans in pursuit of the fluffy toy dogs which were being pulled across the track by a high-speed cord. cheetah is one of the fastest animalin the world. they like to eat live flesh

while the rest of the world may be surprised at Sarah's rapid pace which National Geographic photo editor Kim Hubbard said made her look like a 'polka-dotted missile', Cathryn Hilker, founder of the Cincinnati Zoo's Cat Ambassador Program, who has helped raise Sarah from when she was a cub, is not surprised - She had always known that the feline had it in her to complete the dash in less than 6 seconds. they need to ran after there pray because they need to get the run each days of tthe week.

I need to now this becuase i can inform so childern that does not know nuthin about the cheetah. everyone needs to know about this because you could be attacked by one........ lol

Gorilla siblings reunite after 3 years
By: Meera Dolasia

Two gorilla siblings have been reunited after 3 years they were separated when the oldest one Kesho was moved to a London Zoo from Dublin Zoo. Kesho was moved to London to be in a program about breeding. When Kesho was moving back the Zoo keepers weren’t so sure that Kesho and his brother Alf would even recognize themselves. But the Zoo keepers had nothing to worry about because they reginize each other by looking at their noses cause that is how Gorillas reginize each other, they look at their noses and know if that is one of their siblings
I think the main idea is Now Alf and Kesho recognize each other they spend every minute of the day spending time with each other to see what they missed while they were separated. Gorillas share about 98% of their DNA Just like humans, gorillas can recognize siblings or their clans by looking at their noses. Just like humans who haven't seen each other in a few years, they began with a formal handshake. But then, the two could just not contain their excitement - First came the squeeze of shoulders, then a giant hug and finally, the ultimate evidence of joy - A rough tumble into the soft grass.

I think a main idea was that they recognized each other after 3 years cause sometimes humans can’t even recognize each other from that long ago. I think it was like a family reunion for Kesho and Alf since they lived in different cities and then they reunite. They even have a younger brother named Evindi. The best news is that all three siblings will now spend the rest of their lives together at this $4.72mm USD Gorilla Colony that has been established for the many bachelor lowland gorillas that are currently in the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria breeding program.
Western lowland gorillas are critically endangered in the wild. Largely found in the dense forests of Northern and Central Africa, these majestic animals have become victims of deforestation and poaching in recent years. Scientists estimate that there are only between 100,000 to 150,000 of the species remaining in wild.
I chose this article because I know what it feels like to be separated from your family for a few years cause I’ve been separated from my cousins Lindsey and Reagan. Cause their mother thought Springfield was too small so they moved to St. Louis and now their thinking about moving to somewhere farther away cause she thinks St. Louis is becoming to small. But I know how the gorillas felt when they met each other again cause I got to see my cousins at my other cousin Sarah’s graduation. Information will help me in the future cause I might see my family again.

Im summarizing a Runner That Makes Usain Bolt’s 100-meter sprint seem painfully slow by Meera Dolasia. It is about a cheetah named sarah that runs the 100 meter sprint in 5.95 seconds.
Usain hopes to complete the distance in 9.4 seconds, Sarah has already done it in a blistering 5.95 seconds.The fastest time, even a younger male cheetah wasn’t faster than her, he was a 9 seconds instead of 5. Cheetahs are the world's fastest land mammals. They can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles an hour in just three seconds. That must be why people are slower than cheetahs because they can accelerate so fast.
I chose this article because it is interesting . I learned cheetahs can accelerate from 0 to 60 in three seconds. It added to my knowledge of how fast they run . It will help me understand why cheetahs catch really fast prey.

I choose my article on US hurricanes. Hurricanes are like twisters they are worse though. Hurricanes destroy everything in its sight. Hurricanes affect many states and contents in the whole universe.
The first idea is hurricanes and what they are. Hurricanes are a strong wind that destroys anything in its sight. It is like a wind that is so strong that it can kill you. They are unstoppable. Once a hurricane starts it will stop when it wants to.
The second main idea is about the damage it can make. Destroy mobile homes and houses and sings. This is just some of the thing it can destroy. It also causes floodings.
The third main idea is what to do during a hurricane. You should go to a safe place. Then try to help others. You should always be careful during a hurricane.
I picked this article because I wanted to know more about hurricanes. This article is good because I would need to know what to do if I was in one. This article taught me what to do if there was a hurricane, where some safe places would be at, what could happen in a hurricane.

That chimp is really smart.I asked some people around me before i showed them the video and they couldnt even figure it out them selves.I was really impressed.
I also found out that only 1 % of their dna is different than ours.I wonder if all chimps could figure that out.When I read about it I even had trouble my self trying to figure it out snd i finally did after a couple of minutes.
I think that if we could use them for research it could help some people learn more from the chimps than teachers because to students they'de be more interested and more likely to pay attention to some thing that interests them.Also do they develope thos skills from their parents or do they learn them themselves.
This topic is really interesting.To me I think chimps are smarter than most average humans

Cows Get To Eat Candy? Sweet! By Meera Dolasia. Wow that is cool.
However Nick Smith and Joseph Watson, the owners of Mayfield-based United Livestock Commodities are not experimenting with the diet to see if they can create a gourmet cocoa-infused beef but because, it was the only solution they could come up with, to survive this year's severe drought. That sounds cool.
“The rest comprises of a healthier ethanol by-product and some mineral nutrients. That according to the farmers, is the perfect mix of nutritious (and probably delicious) meals for the cows”. It was hard to feed cows this year.Becuase grain was so high. “After sifting through various alternatives, they settled for candy, which (surprise, surprise) has a higher fat content than corn. It was also affordable since they are able to obtain disfigured candy that is not suitable for retail sales, directly from manufacturers at highly discounted prices”. After all candy is cheaper than grain. I hope they like it. I chose this article because I have cows. It also interested me. Because I have never seen cows eat candy. But I have seen cows eat PIE!

Its harder than it looks and chimps are smarter then they look they out smart the prey . Some of the scientist think there on top of the food chain.
So when the chimp looks at the tube he wants the peanut so he sticks his hand down the tube he cant get it . So he leaves for a few minutes and with something in his mouth. Then spits it and gets the peanut.
So I wonder if I could of figure it out that quick probably not. I wonder if just any ordinary person could figure it out.

I am doing my article review on US hurrcaines. they talk about what a hurricane is and what they can do. they affect may states and contents. they are worse than twisters but just like them.
they can kill many people and destory many places. they can take roofs off of places. if u are in one u should take shelter. they can be very dangouris and make many things bad.

I am summerizing "Nifty Invention By Teen Could Save School Districts Thousands of Dollars."
The boy wanted to make buses more fuel effeciant so he designed what he called a "Green Shield" It was a shield that went over the front part of the bus.
He got a grant from Pepsi to help pay for his experiments to see what type of shield would work the best. He made several types to see what worked the best for the least amount of cost.
He finally came up with one that looks like a snow bluff that goes on the top of the bus. He is waiting on permission to use this type on public buses as well.
It does not matter what your age is you can always do something to help the environment.
